I hadn’t thought much about who’s walking in my woods lately. Until I took out the garbage this afternoon and found this.
There were two sets of tracks running side-by-side down the drive, bypassing the duck and chicken coups without a pause. Too large for a fox, I suspect they’re coyote tracks.
I followed the tracks backward and found where they came out of the woods. At night we often hear the yip-yipping of coyotes in the distance, but this is as close as I’ve seen them recently. What I find curious is that they didn’t show any interest in the chickens and ducks. Although Paul spied what he thought were fox tracks in the snow earlier in the day.
